It seems that the favorite smoke of the Missourian people is nothing other than the Montecristo White Series Two, which places the much-loved La Finca Ammo Box into second place. In third place, we find the Macanudo Ascot, which is a rarer inclusion in our findings. Speaking of rare additions, it seems like the good people of Missouri also favour the JR Alternative Partagas 1845 Gigante, which appears nowhere else in this study.
In the beautiful state of New Hampshire, we find that the La Finca Ammo Box takes center stage as the most popular cigar in the state. In second place we find the legendary Excalibur No. I, which perhaps surprisingly, only appears in two other states (Massachusetts and West Virginia). In Utah, the state known for its beautiful landscapes and national parks, we find its most popular cigar to be the mild yet revered La Fontana Galileo.
In second place we find the La Finca Ammo Box, which is itself closely followed by our very own JR Alternative H. Upmann Colombo. In fourth place, we find another cigar that appears nowhere else, the Punch Rare Corojo Rothschild, which is closely followed by the mighty Palma Real Paradisus Churchill.
In second and third place we found the most popular smokes to be the Avo XO Legato and the Mr. B Original, neither of which appeared anywhere else in our research. In fourth and fifth place we have the same cigar, the machine-made Dutch Masters. The only difference here is that the 50-pack is slightly more popular than the 5-pack.
At this point, we can concede that 2020 has been an unusual year. With the Covid-19 pandemic still ongoing and all the lock downs around the world, we must hold on to the familiar things that bring us comfort. For me, it’s a fine Camacho Connecticut. We decided to compile this list of the top premium cigars for 2020, so you have a go-to list when you’re feeling meh and want to try something exquisite.
These are all premium smokes. Some of them are quite pricey, while others are your everyday option. One of the cigars, the H. Upmann 1844 Anejo, will be released later this year. It’s going to be an awesome smoke, so stay woke. In truth, there are many premium smokes in the market.
So, my list in no way diminishes any other premium smoke out there. In fact, we encourage you to share your top 5 list in the comment section. That said, let us delve into our top premium cigars for 2020 list. As you can probably deduce, Oliva Serie V Melanio is made by Oliva Cigar Co.
They say combining Nicaraguan tobacco with Ecuadorian tobacco is not easy. Thankfully, Oliva Cigar Co. has savant blenders who make it work. The result is a slightly box-pressed, silky-smooth smoke peppered with intense woody notes, fruity and floral nuances, and a little spicy tang. Expect tons of smoke, a long strong finish, and incredible transitions throughout the smoke.
In fact, it was Cigar of the Year 2014. And even though J. Cortez Cigars N.V. acquired Oliva Cigar Co., we remain hopeful that the Oliva quality will prevail. You can order Oliva Serie V Melanio Robusto online for $9 to $10. CamCamacho is an iconic brand, especially for aficionados who love a bad ass smoke.
Camacho Corojo has knocked me upside the head more than once while Camacho American Barrel-Aged Cigar is one of my favorite special-occasion stogies. Back to our topic. Camacho American Barrel-Aged cigar is a very popular stogie. Surprisingly, when it was first released (June 2015), folks thought Camacho was just jumping on the Barrel-Aged bandwagon.
The Camacho American Barrel-Aged cigar features a great blend of fillers. You have your American Broadleaf, Pennsylvania Maduro, and Honduran Corojo. The Honduran Corojo is aged at least six years. Next, this bad boy is cloaked in American Broadleaf binder and wrapper. Afterward, the whole shebang is finished in American Bourbon oak barrels for at least five months.
A single Camacho America Barrel-Aged cigar goes for $11 to $15, depending on the size. There is no way you can smoke a Montecristo Espada and not feel like a King. Even just learning the process this stogie went through to get to your humidor is special. For starters, this cigar, released in July 2014, has the best vintage Nicaraguan tobacco you will find anywhere! As a filler, you have Nicaraguan Habano (Jalapa) Viso Ometepe Vintage 2008, Nicaraguan Habano (Jalapa) Seco Vintage 2008, and the Nicaraguan Habano (Condega) Ligero Vintage 2008.
